Indiana Video: http://youtu.be/Wwbo7a2Tbe8?hd=1 Total precipitation and snowfall observed over the weekend:  Want to acknowledge that the snow accumulation Saturday evening was unexpected....the system was quite dynamic and the cold air wrapped in quicker than expected, producing a more widespread band of moderate snowfall which overcame the warm grounds.  We thought there would be a brief burst of snow on the back-edge, but this happened more widespread and faster than we thought. The heavy rates overcame the warm surfaces and allowed accumulations of 1-2" in several locations.  Not to mention, 1-1.5" of precipitation fell across the state Friday-Saturday.   Weather Headlines:…

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMwm0-3TBGQ&feature=youtu.be&hd=1 Good morning!  Scattered showers will continue through the morning hours today...and the trend continues to slow down the exit of this disturbance...which means we are dealing with a shower risk much of the day.  That said, it will be very widely scattered this afternoon, with the greater focus shifting into southeast Indiana toward the Cincinnati area.  With the cold pocket of air aloft, don't be shocked to see isolated pockets of small hail with these showers this afternoon, especially southeast.  Note data is underdone on the rain coverage currently. Total additional precipitation: Most areas a tenth inch or…
